The league supplies basic equipment including balls and catcher’s gear however you may choose to purchase these on your own. Included in the registration fee are: uniform shirt, pants, socks, insurance, and umpire fees. You will need to provide:
- Girls in grades K-5 should have a glove large enough to fit an 11 inch softball.
- Girls in grades 6-8 should have a glove that is large enough to fit a 12 inch softball.
- All bats used on travel teams must have an ASA/USA certified stamp.
Local places to get equipment:
Check your local yard sale groups! Or as a neighbor or friend who may have some their kids have outgrown.
Play It Again Sports has both used and new equipment.
The Summer Rec league is a great option for girls looking to play the game and have lots of fun in a low-key setting.
While the Summer Hockomock League has lots of fun too, it's more competitive and you can expect more travel to local towns than the Summer Rec league.
Reach out to us if you'd like to discuss what the best option is for your girl!
No, girls do not need to play in the spring leagues to be eligible for the Summer Hockomock Travel League.
